Build or install a sandbox
Sandboxes provide a safe place for children to play and stay out of the soil.
- Use a cover to keep soil and cats out.
- Use play sand that has been washed and screened for use in children’s play areas.
Place rubber mats, pea gravel, or mulch under children’s play sets
Be sure to check that the rubber mats, pea gravel, or mulch are safe for children. Check with the Consumer Product Safety Commission
and the ASTM
before purchasing recycled rubber products.
